take a look at videocopilot.net and do a tutorial search.
keyword "Suicide" and you're done.
this is maybe an interesting addition to the product above
Be warned, that website plays audio when opened. Web designers should know better than to do that.
Thanks for the tip Thomas. I'll look into it.
I'd prefer a free solution. I'm assuming there's a good way to do this just by messing around with some sort of particle effects in AE itself, but I could be wrong.

you´re absolutely right. i´didn´t know that the flash movie has autostart. i hate this too. sometimes it gives me nearly a heartattack whenever i forget to turn down volume on monitors.

no, nothings wrong with it, but spending a few bucks on the Videocopilot DVD would save you a lot of time.
learning how to use particle effects to achive the desired look takes time but free - like all the other tutorials about particles by Andrew Kramer.
Using just Ae's cc mercury plugin won´t bring you far.
Foam is perfect for this especially since your shot is distant.
I tend to advise compositing stock elements for things like this rather than trying to simulate a real-world phenomenon with particle effects.
There are free bloody exit wound stock movie elements here:
This is the same answer that I'd give to someone saying that they want to simulate fire or explosions.
Detonation Films gives a lot of stuff away for free, and even the stuff that they charge for is not expensive.
